Default Re: Replacing Engine/Trans.Mounts

I believe you have to remove the jack under the oil pan or transmission before loosing and tightening the 2 nuts, but you might still need to raise your car or put it on stands, as there is not enough room to get into that area.

It's not that difficult to take the lower engine mount or tranny mount out, but much harder to put the new one back in as the new one is not "compressed" (see attached). I finally used a 2x4 with the cradle as pivot point to move the transmission horizontally for a few mm to let the new one slide in the position. Also, the 2 nuts on the frame side of the top mount should be loosed to give more room for the engine to move. After replacing the bottom tranny mount, replacing the top is a breeze.

Enjoy the "new" quiet and smooth Saturn after the new mounts installed. It's a huge difference.
